Following its preliminary event in 2009, IFSV was launched in Japan in 2010 as a festival for science films and visualizations. Our aim is to contribute to foster a culture of science appreciation through the promotion and development of visual expressions.
IFSV's recent focus goes to the exploration of the possibility of fulldome/immersive media.
Among various activities and events, IFSV's annual DomeFest has been gaining worldwide attention as a momentous event, attracting wide variety of people, from world's leading creators to novices or fulldome fans.
